BPMourning300It is with a heavy heart and deep sadness that we report the death of Border Patrol Agent Rogelio Martinez of the Big Bend Sector. On today’s date, November 19, 2017, Martinez and his partner were on patrol in the Van Horn Border Patrol Station area of operation when they responded to activity. Shortly after responding, Martinez’ partner called for assistance and reported both agents were injured. Responding units provided medical assistance, and both agents were transported to a nearby hospital.

As of this writing, the cause of this tragedy is not being reported as this situation is unfolding and an active investigation is underway. Various local and federal authorities are on scene to assist with the investigation and to search the area for any suspects or witnesses.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Agent Martinez and his family and our fellow agent who is currently in the hospital in serious condition.

The incident with 10-year-old Rosa Maria Hernandez is resulting in verbal attacks against Border Patrol agents and the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) calls upon Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to clarify the facts surrounding the issue to the public.

On October 24, 2017, at approximately ‪3:30 a.m.‬ Rosa Maria Hernandez (10 yrs. old) and her adult cousin, were on their way to Driscoll Children’s Hospital in Corpus Christi, Texas. Rosa Maria and her cousin were traveling from Laredo, Texas, in a four-door sedan via Highway 59. The four-door sedan Rosa Maria and her cousin were traveling in was a non-ambulance/contracted private medical transport. Rosa Maria was traveling to Driscoll Children’s Hospital for a scheduled gallbladder surgery.

Police released a photo of Hisaias Justo Lopez, the suspect who is accused of stabbing and killing Border Patrol Agent Isaac Morales on May 20, 2017. Lopez was detained by witnesses on the night of the incident until police arrived to take custody of him. His bond hearing was scheduled for May 30, 2017, but was rescheduled after his court-appointed attorney withdrew from the case.
